Very first try at making a map in this game, once you play you'll notice I was inspired by my favorite campaign mission :D
Disclaimer: Works only with vehicles in the current experimental version.
Instructions start here Greetings Cadet,
Our recent scans showed a large Energy Crystal deposit near the core of the planet.
Unfortunately, due to eruptions, a small group of our Rock Raiders has been trapped apart of our HQ. The rocks are too hard for their drills and they do not have explosives with them, luckily there is a path looping around the caved in position!
Guide our Rock Raiders along the path, but be carefull! The caves are flooding with lava from fissures in the ground that opened during the eruptions. You must be as quick as possible to not lose your raiders.
Cadet, once you have reached HQ, you have to quickly reastablish the power supply and collect 60 Energy Crystals.
Hints: (DONT READ IF YOU WANT TO TRY IT WITHOUT ANY HELP) 1. It may be a good idea to disable the rubble shoveling in the priorities menu 2. Once you reach HQ, upgrade your Tool Store as the very first, dynamite will be essential early on. 3. The Hover Scout can Jump across 1 tile gaps, use that to your advantage! Instructions end Sadly, I cannot hide hints in the ingame briefing.
Minor changes after getting some feedback. Changes: - 2nd Lava pool in 2nd Cave expands slightly slower. - Increased Crystal requirement on the Hard map to 100.
